covering thumb tacks???
I am going to make mini cork boards, but I am having a heck of time figuring out how to do the thumb tacks! I tried using my zyron with the laminsting sheet, and it looks aweful. Has anyone done this can can give me some ideas? TIA

i cover mine with buttons- i adhere them w/ hot glue. i have seen on this site some use crystal effecte--that i haven't tried. i would think you could also use embossing powder.

Then do you cover the buttons with the paper or just leave them? I want to use the same paper that I am using for the cork board on the tacks. I am going to try covering the button and then hot gluing...thanks

I use the clear flat marbles. I stamp and color a pretty something for underneath then glue the pin on.

sandwich your image (paper) between the pushpin and a clear pebble (floral dept at Walmart). Use Crystal Effects to adhere.

Stamp a design on Polyshrink/Shrinky Dinks, shrink them, and then glue them to the top.
